It does seem as though we are moving slowly but surely in the direction where everything comes together, doesn’t it? I am talking about the world of consumer electronics here. Back in the day, one had to carry a mobile phone to make and receive both calls and text messages, while there is the PDA for us to electronically keep tabs of our appointments and such, with a MP3 player or portable media player to handle our on-the-go entertainment needs, and a digital camera to snap photos for memories in the years ahead. Fast forward to this decade, and a smartphone is able to do all of that, and then some. However, most smartphone speakers aren’t all that great to begin with, which is where the $49.99 Smartphone Induction Speaker comes in.

Basically, the Smartphone Induction Speaker with an alarm clock function will be able to amplify audio playback from your iPhone, Galaxy or other Android smartphone, is fully rechargeable, and does not require any kind of prior setup so that you can get started right away. Not only that, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections are not required – all that you need to do is place your smartphone on top of it, and play whatever tunes your ears fancy. Music will be amplified across an entire room, thanks to a pair of high-quality 2-watt speakers and a digital clock with alarm. A full charge would enable it to handle up to 15 hours of non-stop playback.

When it comes to the name Bang & Olufsen, you know for sure that your ears are in for a treat. Of course, quality comes with a price, and do not expect any of the Bang & Olufsen products that you read about here today to arrive cheap as they will most probably make a considerable dent in your bank account. Still, if you are in the market for wireless speakers and would like something which merges both form and function without worrying about how much it costs, then the trio of Bang & Olufsen wireless speakers ought to fit you to a T. These three speakers will take advantage of the new WiSA standard for multi-channel wireless sound, delivering acoustic performance beyond anything you have heard without cables, and they would arrive in the form of the BeoLab 17, the BeoLab 18, and the BeoLab 19.

The BeoLab 17 comes across as an extremely flexible, compact speaker that boasts of extremely large sound reproduction, while the BeoLab 18 would be the most recent incarnation of Bang & Olufsen’s sculpturally iconic audio columns when it comes to walls and floors. Last but not least, there is the BeoLab 19 which is a radically redesigned subwoofer that is capable of pumping ot refined bass with a visceral punch, with looks that could kill.

As mentioned earlier, they will all arrive with integrated WiSA standard for that added level of convenience. Apart from that, the BeoLab 18 will feature an acoustic lens tweeter and 21-lamella front that arrives in solid oak, black or white shades, being a quantum leap in the evolution of Bang & Olufsen’s signature column speakers. As for the BeoLab 17, it will feature a wedge-like form that makes it a snap to place just anywhere, ranging from bookshelves to walls. Not only that, BeoLab 19 is a subwoofer that will draw on the extraordinary rigidity of a 12-faced dodecahedron and a pair of drivers operating in-phase to eliminate unwanted vibrations.

Of course, most of us would be asking by now just how much these will cost? The BeoLab 17, 18 and 19 wireless speakers will be available from this month onward, retailing for $3,990, $6,590 and $3,395, respectively.

You know when the name Ferrari is mentioned, we are not talking about the run-of-the-mill vehicles here – rather, they are high performance thoroughbreds, and boy, do they cost a pretty penny if you ever want one of these puppies in your garage.
